2. Georgia football still puts up impressive havoc numbers on a slow day
Despite Georgia football recording just two sacks, their defense still bullied the Missouri Tigers last Saturday.
The Dawgs recorded 24 havoc plays against the Tigers on a day where things weren’t as elite as they usually would be. They still added two dozen plays to their season havoc numbers, which should be considered a victory.
On top of the two sacks, there were six tackles for loss, four pass breakups, one blocked kick, and 11 quarterback hurries.
Those numbers give Georgia 54 tackles for loss, 28 sacks, 31 pass breakups, 141 quarterback hurries, and four blocked kicks. Yes, they have 141 quarterback hurries on the season, which is mind-blowing because that is how often this defense gets in the backfield and causes a quarterback to question his sanity.
Travon Walker and Jamon Dumas-Johnson recorded the two sacks. Walker contributed two of those tackles for loss and led the team with three quarterback hurries. He was a force for Georgia and showed fans he could hang with the best of them.
Nolan Smith blocked the kick for Georgia, which resulted in a safety.
However, that secondary being able to break up four balls was huge. Latavious Brini, Kamari Lassiter, Lewis Cine, and William Poole made sure when that ball came their way to bat it down and keep it out of the Missouri receivers’ hands.
Even on an “off” day, Georgia was able to bully the Missouri offense and keep them out of the endzone. These Dawgs are on a mission, and whatever mistakes they have to work on will be fixed before the end of the season.
